The Australian Museum Archives holds more than 150 years of records of the Museum, its people, buildings, science, exhibitions and events. In this blog we want to share some of the things we enjoy about our collections, tell some Museum stories and give you an insight into the work we do every day.
What did I conclude from the Co-curation and the Public History of Science Workshop at the Science Museum, London? Well, organisational change is hard, so I'll share some of my learning that relates to the new ways of working given the online world. It's relevant to co-curation as the way the web is now demands new ways of engagement from and with our audiences.
Attending this workshop at the Science Museum, London. The aim is to create dialogue and debate and learn from each others' experience of co-curation as the Science Musuem moves into the next phase of gallery redevelopment.
Here are my quick notes. There is also more on the workshop wiki: http://ccphworkshop.pbworks.com/w/page/CCHPWorkshopWiki
Well, probably yes which is why I've been asked to run a mini-workshop on this stuff at the Museum Shops Association 2010 Conference on 9 September. If I was a museum shop manager what would I need to know about social media and Web 2.0? Find some answers and other resources on this page and the Powerpoint slides will be added soon'ish.
